Roller Skating Labels: Be a Big Wheel

Back in the halcyon days of roller skating, roller rinks would produce a label with an rink or roller skate theme and the name and address of the rink so you could put in it on your roller skate box. The more labels you had, the more places you have been skating.

I have more than 100 different labels and thought it might fun to to showcase some of them

Entering Missouri/Entering Arkansas

These two undated, unmarked real photo postcards of the border between Arkansas and Missouri. After a little sleuthing, I determined that this is Highway 61, just east of Blytheville, Arkansas.

If I knew enough about cars then I could probably put a date on these postcards.

There is nothing left on the Missouri side. The Texaco and over service station are no more.

There is one solitary building on the Arkansas side. It’s hard to see in the postcard as it’s  semi-obscured by the turn arrow and 25mph sign (with a Budweiser sign) on top still stand but nearly everything else is long gone.
